The cellist has some big time experience performing under high pressure. He and his family competed on Britain's got talent, the year before he won the BBC award.

He can be found on youtube. He is quite talented.



Here he is performing with his siblings on Britain's got talent (performance was from the semi-finals)



And BBC



Was excited on my lunch break, to see news of the music choices. The gospel choir is interesting, but I really love they chose a young celloist.

So, I am looking for videos of the Kingdom Choir and found this. It seems to have a relationship with a church in CA, perhaps a friend or family member recommended them to Meghan?

Not great video quality (the audio is off) but I am pretty sure this is them.

Their website explicitly states that they can be booked for weddings :)

Zaira---WOW

What a terrific worship medley. They are very disciplined singers and I can't wait to see what they bring in May.

Great is Thy Faithfulness is another hymn near and dear to my heart! I guess I have a lot of favorite hymns. That performance was beautiful!

Great is thy Faithfulness was sung at the funerals of my mother, my father, and my brother and is very dear to me as well. Since I'm the last man standing now I guess I'll have to sing it myself as I go to glory since my husband, a wonderful man, may precede me or even worse pick some random pop song.

I have so enjoyed playing hooky from regular life here today. Blessings to all of you and to H & M as they prepare for one of life's greatest joys/ordeals---their wedding. :)

Oh my gosh Bethel, their music is so wonderful, I listen to it all the time. If the choir is affiliated with them, I'm sure that they are powerful.

*comes back into thread - sees discussion about Total Praise still and rubs hands together*

Mwaahahahahahahaaa!! My plan to seed the consciousness with that song so that M&H subconsciously have it performed at the wedding is succeeding!!

Let's get back on topic.

I am at work now, so I can't do a proper cleanup.

And I hate to close this thread. One more reported post and its closed until a British Mod can do a cleanup.

What if they decide to "jump and break the glass" like in a Jewish wedding!
It is their wedding .

Because neither are Jewish and it would be the height of cultural appropriation to do so. The traditions discussed so far have all been within the background and cultural heritage of Harry or Meghan.

I can hardly wait because the music of British royal weddings is usually magnificent. I hope the soprano sounds better than Kiri Te Kanua did at Harry's parents wedding as I love a beautiful soprano, and it seems like Harry and Meghan must too. Same with the Gospel Choir, they must have thought how beautiful they would sound at their wedding. A truly great trumpeter can make the trumpet soar or weep and so too can the chosen celloist from what I have seen on Youtube.

We are going to be privileged to hear some of the best music of differing genres, chosen for the joy of the bride and groom and the entertainment of their guests. I think truly inspired music is totally colourblind.

As I said further up the thread, I listened to several arrangements on Youtube--are there any versions you especially like or think would work for the wedding?

A black gospel choir sang on stage at Buckingham Palace for the Queen during her Golden Jubilee celebrations all the way back in 2002. This is not such a leap.

Let's hope for at least one of the patriotic British hymns - I Vow to Thee My Country, Jerusalem, even Land of Hope and Glory would be nice with its very religious second verse. Mind you I understand it's played at graduation ceremonies in the US which is a bit odd as it's something of an unofficial national anthem for us Brits.

I wonder which version of God Save the Queen they'll choose? There are many different ways of doing it and I hope they choose to include the second verse. The arrangement chosen for Charles and Diana's wedding was particularly nice.

'I vow to Thee My Country' is one of my favourites and I'm hoping for it, though of course it has featured at Charles and Diana's and William/Kate's weddings. I would like 'Jerusalem' too, but well, we'll have to wait and see.
Princess Margaret also had Purcell's 'Trumpet Voluntary' for her processional. I would love it for this wedding. I think it would suit St George's.

with reference to the cake, which Heather mentioned, surely one elderflower and lemon, however large isnt going to be it for a wedding with 600 guests and possibly other people to be catered for. I know there'll be a replica made too, but I am hoping for a groom's cake even though KP said no.

I for one hope to see something along these lines.



And of course the above spoof was of this original.

C'mon. Meghan, get the gang going! You can do it!

So what's left to announce? Coat of Arms and Wedding party? I assume both will be announced next week? That just 2 weeks out.

I am surprised we have not heard about it yet. Keeping us in suspense!
